We were told "you're going to love Mahone Bay". Well, we did. It certainly is a Special Place.
Located only one hour from Halifax MAHONE BAY is easily accessible via Highway 103, The Lighthouse Route, on the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia.
European settlers arrived here in 1754. The town's heritage homes and original architecture are much photographed and painted making it a popular spot for artists.
Protected waters and magnivicent vistas, make it a popular sailing, kayaking, cycling and hiking destination.
Our first view of Mahone Bay was breath-taking. You see all the sailboats bobbing in the Harbour, then you see the iconic "Three Churches" - St. James Anglican Church, St. John's Evangelical and Trinity United. This wonderful view is on many pictures and postcards from the town.
There is also the Settler's Museum to visit.
